“Can’t wait to work with her more!”

Caryl came out to our house for a 1 and ½ hr for an Interior Design Consultation to take a look and share with us some of her expert advice on our home. We have lived here for just about 1 year, and although the house was turnkey move-in ready, there were some details that just weren’t quite my style. We’ve been wanting to do some upgrades, but weren’t sure about where to start and the best values for our limited budget. After talking with her, we decided it was best to hold off on a kitchen remodel for now and take on some less expensive “spruce up” projects. She gave us some paint color options, ideas to spruce up our powder room, made some suggestions regarding lighting, and some possible ideas on furniture and accessories. Not only did Caryl arrive fully equipped with sample swatches and design ideas, she fully understood and took into account what my husband and I were looking for on a design & style level. Her kind, thoughtful, and detailed demeanor is what I love. Can’t wait to work with her more!

“A really positive experience”

We chose Caryl to work with for our kitchen and living area remodel. It was a really positive experience. She helped to walk us through the process, genuinely listened to our wants and needs and then laid out some of the options (and challenges!) so that we could try to keep everything within budget. Her budgeting and timing estimates were accurate and she always kept us in the loop during the project itself. We ended up with a kitchen and living area which met (or even exceeded) our expectations.

“A pleasure to work with”

Caryl at CK Hoffman was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her ability to prioritize, list, and effectively communicate her expectations makes working with her effortless. Her choices of color and finishes make her work stand out. This house became a fresh new home through an amazing transformation! If given the opportunity FSI would gladly support CK Hoffman Design and Caryl in future projects.

“Caryl worked with us on a house that she had never seen”

We needed help with our long distance home renovation - the house was in California, but we live in Portland. Caryl worked with us on a house that she had never seen except from bad photos and a floor plan. It was a major renovation - entire house. We are almost finished with the renovation and it looks fabulous! Our contractor and all the vendors involved compliment us on how everything flows together - the floors/carpet, paint, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, lights and tile. Caryl's eye for color and textures is amazing! I hope she can come visit to see it in person some time!

“Eye for design is excellent”

I have worked with Caryl on a few homes to get them ready to sell. Caryl's eye for design is excellent. She can make a dated home come to life with modern new finishes. Her attention to detail makes her stand apart from other designers. I highly recommend her!

“Can’t wait to work with you again”

“Definitely recommend her services”

We orginally asked Caryl for a color consultation for the exterior house color, but ended up having her coordinate the entire painting contract including some siding repairs. She is very responsive and ensured the entire job was completed to our satisfaction, making multiple trips to the house to check on the details. I would definitely recommend her services.

— Ian Bingham, Homeowner

“Very easy to work with”

Caryl was VERY easy to work with! She made it painless for me (all the necessary decisions, etc.) while she managed my project that included new siding and new exterior painting (including color consultation), upgraded exterior entry way, new garage doors, and installing a new patio door and a new patio. She sourced everything and brought in wonderful subcontractors. She always kept my budget in mind and kept in close communication with me about everything that was going on. The timelines we established were met (no delays). I would (and have) highly recommend Caryl!

“Caryl was chosen because she exceeds just ‘good’”

As an appraiser who has spent almost 30 years looking at other people's houses, I know good design when I see it. Caryl was chosen because she exceeds just "good" design. With her wealth of contacts in both design and construction, my home is now among the ones I consider with that WOW factor.
